Bahco’s vast experience in manufacturing pliers is reflected in every product within its extensive range. In many professions good pliers are just as essential as nimble fingers, users may make thousands of cuts per day, meaning that it is extremely important that their pliers must be of a high level of quality and ideally be ergonomically designed. Whether the professional requires cutters, combination pliers, or compact pliers, users can rest assured Bahco’s pliers will meet the Tradie’s stringent demand for function, durability, and comfort of use. Bahco uses their 150 years of experience to continue to maintain its cutting edge in design and manufacturing. Bahco was the first company in its market to implement the ISO 9001 quality system. This system covers all activities from product development though to delivery. This means that there are processes at each stage from inception through to delivery that ensures that any Bahco tool lives up to its promises.
Most pliers within the Bahco range have undergone the ERGO™ Process. Each tool that bears the ERGO™ brand has undergone a unique, scientific, 11 point testing programme. This programme includes end user engagement and testing, and input from medical professionals, industrial designers, and ergonomic experts. The tool undergoing this process is constantly refined from prototype through to manufacture and has unique characteristics that increases usability, job satisfaction, whilst radically reducing occupational injuries.
Bahco manufactures pliers that are used by Electricians, Telecom Installation Engineers, Network Installation Engineers, Electronics Assembly Workers, Mechanics, and Plumbers.
Bahco’s Side Cutting pliers are used to cut copper, hard steel, and piano wire. Many of these models have undergone the ERGO ™ process. Models such as the 2101G, 2101G – A, and the 21010G – AHL feature an anti-corrosive black oxidised finish to prevent rust. Other models are chrome finished with the same outcome in mind. They feature high performance alloy steel, ERGO ™ handles with a thermoplastic surface on tough polypropylene which gives tradies a superior grip. They have induction hardened edges which are progressive, which ensures the cutting radius progresses along the edge from the inner jaw in order to cut hard material such as piano wire close to the joint, whilst being able to cut soft material such as plastic closer to the outer jaw. They have no edges that can injure the hand or damage sensitive components whilst offering greater leverage and increased cutting capacity due to their reduced cutting edge. There are also models available that are insulated to 1000v for electricians as well as those with coated plastic, longer handles for extra flexibility.
Bahco’s Combination Pliers offers the professional a range of options on the job. Models such as the 2628 G and 2628GC have similar product attributes to the Side Cutting Pliers and have undergone the Bahco ERGO™ process. They afford the users the ability to cut through material as tough as piano wire whilst having a gripping surface suited for gripping hard to secure round and flat surfaces. All pliers in the ERGO ™ range have jaws with rounded contours in order to be held comfortably in many different ways whilst improving accessibility in confined spaces.
For professionals involved in intricate work, Bahco offers a range of compact pliers for precision mechanics and electronics. All models in this category have undergone the ERGO™ process.
